Em hotep!

To my knowledge, not in the literal sense.  But we do have helpful spirits that we call Netjeri, that can take a protective role in several areas of our life. The possibilities of the Netjeri in our lives are so varied and many, it is hard to address them in this simple comment of mine.  But you can always ask them to help provide protection.  One example (of many instances) is your Car.  You can begin a relationship with a Netjeri to watch over your car, and you while you drive.  If you take care of them with a bit of attention, and some offerings, they will help take care of you.

Senebty!

Em hotep!

So I am wondering... how does being Kemetic affect your plans for your funeral? Is it important for us to preserve our bodies still? If we get cremated, will that affect us in the afterlife? Can you even get mummified anymore? Is it something that is still required?

As previously mentioned, I think a photograph, or just someone remembering  I think even just our names is enough to feed our Ka. My mother was cremated, and her Ka is very active and alive!

At this stage, I plan to be cremated. It may be silly, but I just like the idea of being close to my family for a while after I am gone. Put my ashes in an urn with a spell 330 from the Coffin Texts. I am going to ask my family if they would humor me and say Akhu offering prayers for me once a month, or as often as they can remember as their lives carry on. My husband wishes to be cremated as well, and we want our ashes mixed together.

I also think canpic jars are rather inspiring as a design, even though their intended purpose is for the internal organs as part of mummification. An Urn that looks like an Egyptian coffin with a name and likeness of the deceased seems like a nice option too. With a little painting of a Djed at the bottom, and Nut under the lid, you can capture a lot of burial symbology very simply... if you wanted that sort of thing.

Senebty!

Welcome Ana!  Reaching out seemes to (me) to be a reoccurring thing this year.  As someone else who has difficulty reaching out, well done!

You are in my prayers.  When facing uncertainties like this, anxiety makes a mess out of me, so I can empathize with your feelings. Best of luck!
